Mazaganellaceae


Ancestry: Mesozoic -> Podorhabdales -> Mazaganellaceae
Sister taxa: Axopodorhabdaceae, Biscutaceae, Calyculaceae, Cretarhabdaceae, Mazaganellaceae, Prediscosphaeraceae, Tubodiscaceae,

Short diagnosis: Three-shielded placoliths; central-area wide, spanned by bars, grill, net or plate.
The distal shield may be high and flaring, formed from non-imbricating elements, joined along radial sutures. LM image is generally dark, but birefringence increases when the distal shield is high.
